Great southern California experience

Post by carlg »

My request for help finding herps in southern California was answered by Jeff Nordland and Robert Hess and his son Nicholas. I could not have asked for any more gracious guides to great field sites, where I saw quite a few lifers. I was impressed by the concern for the animals (photos, video only) and their environment. Jeff was also generous in helping me get video of a number of species that he uses in his public presentations. I will be posting a link to some of the video highlights soon - still editing.

I learned a few things and had a lot of fun herping with you Carl! Glad you enjoyed yourself while in CA.

Carl, I'm glad we we're able to help you while you were in California. Both days in the field were fantastic and I learned a lot from you too. Hopefully in the future we can find some spectacular herps somewhere again! I too of course am excited to see your footage.
